Mia Farrow Complains about Dafur Treatment
U.S. actress Mia Farrow on Wednesday accused the International Olympic Committee of ignoring China's support for Sudan, which the United States and humanitarian groups say has been waging genocide in Darfur.
She accuses he International Olympic Committee of having no plans now or in the future to encourage an Olympic Truce in Darfur. The truce, which dates from ancient times, calls for a month of peace around the Games.
Ms Farrow, who heads a group called, "Dream for Darfur," where they want Beijing's to pressure China to continue support for the Sudan and call attention to the obvious Genocide there. So far the committee has not made any statements about what is going on in the Sudan and its effects on Human Rights.
